West Ham preparing moves for three quality strikers this summer

LacazetteThe West Ham fans over by the pool table have been discussing their disappointment after drawing with Chelsea after a late penalty saw them drop two points, but they have become a little more spirited after Sky Sports reported that their club are looking at several top strikers.

The report states that the Hammers are eyeing Christian Benteke, Michy Batshuayi and Alexandre Lacazette as Slaven Bilic looks to bolster his attack this summer.

West Ham are set to obtain a place in European competition next season, most likely in the form of the Europa League, though our punters think they could push for a Champions League place.

With the London outfit set to move into the Olympic Stadium next season, West Ham are said to believe that they can attract some of the world’s finest talent.

Whispers around the Tavern suggest that Bilic is eyeing up a striker as a priority position, with rumours indicating that West Ham are prepared to pay up to £40 million to land one of their targets.

Benteke has struggled to keep a place under Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool, whilst interest in the Belgian’s compatriot Batshuayi is high, with several top European clubs said to be interested and he is available for around £30 million.

Meanwhile, France international Lacazette has been prolific for Lyon this term, with the 24-year old having netted 16 goals in 35 appearances.
